DDR4 modules, SSDs for automotive and industrial markets

January 22, 2015 // By Christoph Hammerschmidt
At the upcoming Embedded World, Swissbit AG will showcase memories and storage solutions designed for automotive, industrial and data communications applications. Among the highlights are Solid-State Disks (SSDs) with ultra fast I/O as well as Swissbit's first DDR4 DRAM module which offers significantly higher data rates without any negative effect on energy consumption.

The latest generation of SSDs with SATA-III features an I/O bandwidth of 6 GBit/s. With its X60 series, Swissbit widens its SSD portfolio and increases the data throughput to 525 MByte/s with a random access I/O performance up to 75.000 IOPS. The series leverages Swissbit's proprietary hardware and firmware functionality to address demanding embedded storage applications which require high performance, reliability and resilience over their entire service life. The X-60 products are available at capacities from 16 to 480 GByte and in standard form factors.

Another innovation, Swissbit's first DDR4 ECC SODIMM, the company serves the need to current embedded SBC boards. The DDR4 technology achieves higher data rates at the same energy consumption as the commonplace DDR3 generation. On top of higher I/O bandwidth, the module offer an optimised data bus termination, dynamic bus inversion and CRC protection of the instruction and data buses. With its DDR4 offerings, namely the 8GByte ECC SODIMM Swissbit targets industrial applications in the first place.

With the extension of its PS-100u security series, Swissbit aims at highly integrated secure data storage applications. The company adds the new PS-100u and PS-100u DP micro-SD storage cards, available with or without smartcard.

All memory products from Swissbit meet the requirements of industrial and embedded applications for harsh environments. The products can operate in an extended temperature range, offer all popular interfaces and offer long-term availability. Swissbit will show all these products at Embedded World, hall 1, stand 1/520.
